Siemens presents the complete wind power value chain at Husum Wind 2015

• Slogan: "WINDforce: Adding Value to Your Wind Business” • Digitalization and automation makes technology even more efficient

From the wind turbine to the distribution grids: Siemens has fanned out its solutions for the wind power sector as broadly as the challenges facing the energy turnaround. From September 15 to 18 the company will be presenting its wind technology at the Husum Wind 2015 trade fair, ranging from generating electricity from wind and feeding power into the grid to solutions for distribution and energy storage. This year, Siemens' stand A10 in Hall 2 will focus primarily on cost-cutting and digitalization across the entire wind power value chain. The company is appearing under the motto: "WINDforce: Adding Value to Your Wind Business"


Siemens will be showing its latest products and developments, starting with the Model SWT-3.3-130 wind turbine which, currently undergoing trial testing, is set to deliver the highest efficiency rate for sites offering low and medium wind speeds already in 2017. Load management systems and energy storage - battery storage systems as well as electrolysis systems - are aimed at lowering future costs of distributing and integrating wind power into the grids. Siemens will also be exhibiting energy-efficient ways in which wind turbines are being automated: The multi-level Wind SCADA System is well suited for wind turbine manufacturers as well as for independent service-providers.

Busbar trunking systems and transformers as well as medium- and low-voltage switchgear equipment specially designed for use in wind farms ensure safe, reliable and efficient power distribution and feed into the grid. At Husum Siemens is also presenting integrated and harmonized protection, switching, measuring and monitoring devices that provide efficient distribution. Remote maintenance and modern service concepts help to lower operating costs. Siemens is furthermore showing how technical solutions enable sensible further development of established marketing models - from electricity trading to operating reserve. Digitalization offers a wide range of control options with which Siemens is shaping its responses to the challenges of the energy transition.

"The close proximity to our customers Germany makes the Husum Wind exhibition an outstanding event for us," says Dr. Markus Tacke, CEO of Siemens' Wind Power and Renewables Division. "There, we show our entire range of solutions for advanced markets in which wind power is already delivering a substantial share of the power supply. At this trade show we focus on technologies that contribute to stabilizing grids and lowering costs."

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoil is a high-performance cast resin transformer designed for many demanding and diverse applications while minimizing both installation and maintenance costs. Coils are formed with mineral-filled epoxy, reinforced with fiberglass and cast to provide complete void-free resin impregnation throughout the entire insulation system. HPS EnduraCoil complies with the new NRCan 2019 and DOE 2016 efficiency regulations and is approved by both UL and CSA standards. It is also seismic qualified per IBC 2012/ASCE 7-10/CBC 2013. Cast resin transformers are self-extinguishing in the unlikely event of fire, environmentally friendly and offer greater resistance to short circuits. HPS also offers wide range of accessories for transformer protection and monitoring requirements.
